About Katherine

I first started care giving when a close friend of the family got Emphysema. Some years later I took care of my mother the last two years of her life. I really enjoy caring for the elderly. I find it fulfilling and I feel that I'm giving back something. The day I received certification in being a Personal Care Attendant was very rewarding. To know that I had some knowledge and training to care for love ones and also to expand to caring for other people's love ones has made me proud. I am 51 years old.
